Heading Describing the Most Compelling Reason
To Attend Goes Here

Given the ever-dwindling resources of the development team, and the increasing pressure to deliver high quality software efficiently and quickly, the practice of agile development has come to the forefront as one that offers improvements over other methodologies. However, teams often lack the knowledge to apply team-based development and test tools within the context of the new process.

This free, one-day virtual seminar explores agile development processes and demonstrates strategies and tools for development, testing and QA of applications. Agile experts share best practices for project management as well as proven methods for facilitating collaboration and standardizing practices between team members.
